Sept 18-21 is a Wall St Investor Conference at the Ritz-Carleton.
There will be over 200 CEO's in attendance, including the CEOs of Wells Fargo, Kimberly Clark and ConocoPhillips, meeting with institutional investors about the buying and selling of our future. Different groups will be turning up the heat in street under the unified banner of “Demand Corporate Responsibility!”
Rainforest Action Network will be calling on Wells Fargo CEO Richard Kovacevich to stop Lootin’ and Pollutin’. Historic bank Wells Fargo has consistently refused to change course and continues to fund environmentally and socially destructive companies around the globe. In Appalachia, Wells Fargo finances various coal operators engaged in mountaintop removal, a strip mining process known for its destructive effect on eco-systems and local communities. In Alaska, they support efforts to undermine environmental protections and speed up the rate of forest destruction. In the Amazon, they have financed the disenfranchisement of indigenous nations and the clear cutting of pristine rainforest.
Join us as we hold these irresponsible corporate citizens accountable.
